Pilates teaches you how to train your mind and build symmetry and coordination. It’s a great physical activity that focuses on core strength and trains the body as an integrated whole. It also promotes strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints. Pilates is a great low-impact way to work out your body, but there’s more benefits to Pilates that you may not know about.

Body Awareness

Pilates helps develop personal awareness. It helps you understand how you sit, stand, and move relates to the aches and pains you have or have had. Understanding how your body works can prevent injury and help you improve the condition of your body.

Stronger Core

Enjoy the benefits of Pilates for a stronger, healthy back and body. It’s more important to have a strong core; to have abdominals that are flexible, not just hard. Flexible muscles are strong muscles. They help in balance and functionality that you need to allow your body to function. You rely on a strong core for good posture and efficient movement. It’s important to build a good foundation and core for your body; otherwise you’ll end up tight in some places and weak in others.

Promotes a Long Lean Appearance

In Pilates, you work towards a safe increase in length and stretch of the muscles and range of motion within the joint. If practiced regularly, Pilates will create long, strong muscles without the bulk. Pilates improves muscle tone, balances musculature, and supports proper posture.
